New Jersey is a “no-fault” state, which means that a person’s own insurance company is responsible for the payment a person’s medical bills after a person has been involved in an automobile accident. In order to file a personal injury protection claim with one’s insurance company, an application must be filed shortly after the automobile accident. A delay in filing could result in your medical bills being denied after an automobile accident.
Causes of Car Accidents
There are a number of factors that can contribute to an auto accident. Inclement weather and high traffic congestion are both common catalysts for crashes. However, the most frequent cause of a car accident is driver negligence. If another driver injures you while speeding, texting, eating, or giving in to any other distractions, you have the right to seek compensation. The personal injury lawyers at Aiello, Harris, Marth, Tunnero & Schiffman, P.C. are committed to bringing negligent drivers to justice.
Side Impact Collisions
One of the most damaging types of car accidents is the side-impact collision, colloquially referred to as a T-bone. Over the past 20 years, fatalities from side impact collision have surpassed the number of fatalities from head-on collisions. This is mainly due to the fact that side impact collisions do considerable damage to the back seat of your vehicle, where children sit.
Depending on the speed and force of the negligent driver’s vehicle, a wide range of injuries are possible, including broken bones, paralysis, head trauma, and even death. Since backseat passengers are really only protected by a few inches of steel, these injuries are highly likely to occur during a side impact collision. If you or your loved one has been injured in a T-Bone accident, we aggressively pursue the negligent driver in order to get you the compensation you deserve.
What Should You Do After A Car Accident
If you’ve been in a car accident, the first thing you should do is make sure that you and your passengers have not sustained any serious injuries. Once you’ve confirmed that everyone is ok, you’ll need to exchange insurance information with the other driver, as your car may have sustained costly damage. Even if there is minor damage to both vehicles, you should still call the police, as it’s always beneficial to file an accident report. Contact an attorney before speaking to an insurance adjuster.
